They've been rebuilding the lightweight division since UFC 55, why not reinstate the title. It attracts more excellent fighters and give guys like Sean Sherk a chance to get some real recognition in the UFC.
Little Evil is probably the number 1 contender for the title right now, but they have to reintroduce him before they let him fight for the title that he never lost.
Either way, he has been unimpressive since leaving the UFC. When he lost to Sakurai I was less that impressed, though he did go toe-to-toe with Gomi for a little while.
There is no champ because the UFC refused to recognize the Prodigy as the UFC lightweight champion. I'm just glad he gets a chance to destroy Hughes again.
